    Have you ever made really dumb logic mistakes in your writing?

    I have. One time I made my characters start a fire underwater to attract a monster. I didn't realize how dumb and illogical this was until many months later. I even did research on how to start a fire with gasoline for that particular scene. *Facepalm*

    I always crack up when I remember this. It also reminds me of that Spongebob Squarepants episode where he starts a fire then realizes he's underwater.

    So, have you ever made a logic mistake in your writing? Just want to know that I'm not alone.

    EDIT: I also made a character that lives under water have a pet sea otter. Only a few days ago did I realize the sea otter would need air to breath, thus I made it a gilled sea otter.
